Board of Directors

Sheila Krueger, CCP
Sheila snuck into HR through the technology door. Having perfected the RFP process for HRIS selection and installation, she just stayed in the HR department after the installation. Over the next 20 years, she achieved a broad level of experience in HR, focusing on the Total Rewards areas, including compensation, benefit, wellness, communication, and retirement accounts. The technical aspect of HR continues to be important in her work, and Technology Management was the emphasis of her recently-completed MBA. Communicating the HR narrative has become her super power. Sheila previously served as the VP for ATRA, helped transition the ATRA website from paperclips and duct tape to its new platform, and is also a World at Work member. After a brief stint in San Francisco tech, she has now returned to the Valley of the Sun and has found her way to working remotely for Zoom Video Communications.
